La scatola di Marlboro di colore “verde” – cioè, delle sigarette al mentolo – non è molto familiare in Italia, dove tra l’altro è stata messa al bando un paio d’anni fa, nel 2020, con l’entrata in vigore di una direttiva europea che vieta la diffusione di prodotti del tabacco contenenti aromi come mentolo, vaniglia, cannella et al. Non è che facessero più male le sigarette aromatizzate – tutte le sigarette fanno male – ma i gusti “di fantasia” potevano renderle, secondo Bruxelles, più “invitanti”, incentivandone il consumo… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Supply and Demand, during Pandemic

In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the pandemic caused by Covid 19, forcing people to change their priorities. Trips to the restaurants, vacations to exotic places, watching movies in the big screen took a back seat. They redirected their money and whatever else they earned working from home to renovating their dwellings to double as an office and classroom, purchasing newer laptops and newer models of mobiles, putting new printers in their bedrooms to make for more efficient work output at home, getting gym equipment for fitness because gyms were closed, and furnishing their kitchens with mixers, blenders and juice extractors to make their lives livable during a pandemic. They alternated their meals from being prepared in their kitchen to ordering from restaurants, delivered by any one of the following: Uber Eats, Grab, Skip the Dishes, Foodora, Door Dash, to name a few. Lifestyles changed.

Balance needed between online media and independent press

The symbiotic relationship between news publishers and digital platforms should be beneficial to both parties. But, this is not always the case.
